Sandra Iheuwa, a businesswoman, recently revealed the reasons for her divorce from her ex-husband, Mr. Thompson, also known as Royal Hair.
She revealed on the Honest Bunch podcast with Nedu Wazobia that the marriage failed because Thompson expected her to be a traditional, home wife. She recalled an event during her high-risk pregnancy when he insisted on her cooking, which she found unjust.
Iheuwa also talked about the difficulties of dating Nigerian males. She stressed the necessity of choosing a kind man because many men expect their wives to suffer and face trials to be considered a ‘good wife.’ Iheuwa, on the other hand, made it apparent that she could not live up to these expectations.
She further explained that Thompson wanted her to cook despite having a paid chef. He suggested she at least supervise the chef in the kitchen.
Despite having a maid for such tasks, he criticized her for not cleaning up. As a CEO and successful businesswoman, Iheuwa found these demands unreasonable.
Addressing misconceptions about her personality, Iheuwa stated that she is not a natural troublemaker but will stand up for herself if necessary.
In a shift during the interview, she revealed her efforts to meet her husband’s expectations by cooking and cleaning, only to be met with accusations of pretense. She also clarified that Ubi Franklin, with whom she shares a child, was never her husband but a boyfriend.
